Trading Support

and PI Training



Description of project:
Under the auspices of the Trade Facilitation West Africa (TFWA) program, the project aimed to improve the business skills of small-scale cross-border traders in Burkina Faso. The project was carried out as a randomized controlled trial (RCT) study to measure the impact of the Personal Initiative (PI) Training targeted to a sample of 1,671 small-scale traders. The study will also measure the impact of the PI Training together with a complementary mentoring intervention designed to help traders put the content of the PI Training into action through ongoing engagement with the trainers.

Doorways co-founder Benjamin Scharweit was responsible for the implementation of the project as a member of Leuphana University.
